Hours

We are open 7 days a week from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

For a complete experience, visitors should arrive before 3 p.m., as tours (both tablet tour and guided) take about an hour.

We are closed on major holidays (New Year’s Eve and Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Eve and Day) as well as the first 5 weekdays of January.

The days we are open are subject to change, so please call ahead to verify that we will be open.   September 8 from  1-4 p.m., the museum will be closed to the public for tours due to the Noah Webster Real Ale Harvest Fest.

Getting the Most Out of Your Visit

To fully experience the Noah Webster House and museum, we recommend that you reserve an hour or two for your visit. 

Guests have the opportunity to enjoy an orientation film (Noah Webster: Schoolmaster of America) in our 19th-century schoolhouse theater. You can also explore our exhibit Noah Webster: Defining American; after that, enjoy a tour of Webster’s birthplace via our new tablet tour, or when available, one of our experienced guides.  Family groups will not want to miss Noah’s Discovery Learning Space – three rooms of fun hands-on activities that explore young Webster’s life and 18th-century America.

Save some time for one of our changing exhibits and our gift shop featuring Noah Webster and West Hartford related items. And if you have time in town, visit West Hartford Center which features Blue Back Square (named after Webster’s Blue-Backed Speller) and Webster Walk.
